I'm back with a weekend recommendation

Hey everybody!  I'm diving back into life online after a lovely hiatus with my family.  It was wonderful to ignore the computer for a full week.  In fact, I'll probably do that periodically through the summer because it really is therapeutic.

I thought I'd jump back in with my weekend recommendation.  And I'm going to recommend a book that would be a great Easter gift or an excellent "Welcome Spring" read.  It is If You're Hoppy by April Pulley Sayre and illustrated by Jackie Urbanovic.  This is a wonderfully bouncy and cheerful play on the children's song "If you're happy and you know it."  It goes through various animals and how they move and is perfectly fun to read aloud.

I'll be back to my regular postings this week and I'll be making the rounds to everyone else's blogs too, so I'll talk to you all soon! 


  1. Even though it's still freezing in WI, I'm diving into spring with my preschoolers next week. I'll definitely call the library to check this book out - thanks for the suggestion (LOVE to incorporate literacy with movement any chance I get!).

  2. I hope you had a great vacation. :) We are getting snow flurries here in NS tonight but it was a warmer and lovely day today.

    This book looks like a winner. :) Thanks for sharing.
